Barack Obama wants us all to turn down our thermostats, get rid of our SUVs, and monitor each other’s tire pressure to conserve energy and rescue the planet. How about going after the lavish consumption of his fellow purported eco-warriors?
Let’s start with Green Messiah Al Gore’s massive boat outside Nashville. It’s docked at Hurricane Marina on Center Hill Lake in Smithville, about an hour east of Nashville.
Steve Gill has the goods on Gore’s “Bio-Solar One”–which is supposed to be environmentally acceptable because it’s biodiesel-fueled and solar-powered.
Only, it didn’t have the solar panels until local whistleblowers called attention to it (his spokespeople now say the panels will be installed today) and has instead been plugged in, “sucking a lot of energy from the ‘evil’ energy companies,” as Gill points out:
How many conscience-easing carbon offsets do you think this behemoth will need?
I hear there’s a bumper sticker on the back of it that says “My other boat is a sailboat. Trust me.”
Contest time: Name Gore’s boat.
My suggestion: H.M.S. Eco-hypocrisy.
Commenter lawbwrs: “It’s official name is ‘Bio-Solar One’..yes.. he named his boat “BS1″! We CAN[‘]T do better than that!”
Update: Steve Gill has more at PJM.
